WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Historical Society is asking the public to help solve a history mystery.

The group is bringing hundreds of photos taken by William B. Ogden from the 1920s to mid-1970s to Winchester. They are inviting people to come in, take a look and see if they can identify people, places or events captured in the snapshots. Ogden took photos at schools, churches and civic organizations.

KHS digital projects administrator Jennifer Duplaga told The Winchester Sun (https://bit.ly/1ficbAc) that Ogden snapped images of people in Clark, Bourbon, Jefferson, Fayette, Franklin and Woodford counties, though he was based in Winchester.

“We have been processing the collection, which consists of about 10,000 negatives, and making them accessible to the public,” Duplaga said. “We realize there is not a lot of data that came with the collection.”

The images will be at the Bluegrass Heritage Museum for much of Wednesday.

The KHS and Heritage Museum are asking that “anybody in Winchester, Clark County or the surrounding area who may have any knowledge of the pictures taken by Mr. Ogden” to help provide information about the photos, said Sandy Stults, director of the Bluegrass Heritage Museum.

“Anybody who has an interest in Winchester and Clark County history or people who lived during these event (are asked to attend),” Duplaga said.
